    I just opened up my Siege soundblaster and found I could barely squeeze the tapes in the cassette door. Almost jammed my Frenzy and Ratbat. Is this a one-off issue or does anyone else out there have the same problem?

    Issues not with Soundblaster, he holds Ravage and laserbeak just fine, Ratbat and Red Frumble is slightly too big

    If you had search for comments for Soundblaster, it's like 8/10 posts seems to be about that very issue.

    Some people files some plastic off, others will find one way that some cassettes will fit better, others have done modifications to be able to yank them out when stuck.

    So it's fairly common and well known.

    This is a known problem. Yes, it’s just for Rumble and Ratbat not fitting right for both Soundwave and Soundblaster.

    Ravage and Lazerbeak are a snug fit in both Soundblaster and Soundwave. I got the Dr. Wu. Drones and they fit in Soundblaster and Soundwave just fine. Unsure about Ratbat and Frenzy.

    Rumble got confused. He couldn't remember his own tape size or if he's really Frenzy.

    ^This. I think the only tape I've stuck in Soundwave is Ravage. What a bunch of shit if Frenzy and Ratbat don't fit...

    I've put all 4 cassettes in my Soundblaster at one time or another. Some of them were a more snug fit than others, but I was able to get them all out alright.

    Same. This is the first time I'm hearimg of this problem ( then again, I rarely read through most appreciation threads or review threads, so that could be why)
